The Winnipeg Jets have not been active in the NHL’s trade deadline since Dec. 30, but it looks like the team will be on the move once again.
Sources close to the team say the team is exploring trades involving players and assets that could help them re-sign defenseman Mark Stuart, forward Bryan Little, forward Mattias Janmark and goaltender Connor Hellebuyck.
While the Jets are looking for assets in return, sources tell Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman that the team may not be as eager to part with Stuart.
The Jets are also considering bringing in some draft picks to improve the team’s depth on the blue line, sources say.
The team has not made any major moves since acquiring Stuart in December.
The Winnipeg Jets are scheduled to have two meetings of their free agency schedule on Tuesday, but those meetings are expected to be the first of their seven-day window before the NHL Trade Deadline.
